Antique 19th Century Miniature Chinese Jacket
This is a 19th Century miniature Chinese jacket. Although correctly detailed, the jacket is made of English cotton fabric rather than the more usual silk. A lavender striped and sprigged dress fabric make up the main body of the jacket, the yoke and cuffs are a black glazed cotton. There is fine lavender grey piping to cuffs, koke and collar. This was could have been made for a doll, or possibly for display.
It measures 33 cms, cuff to cuff laid flat. 24 cms long.
There is a small piece cut from the back hem, apart from this good condition.
